Analysis: Perez, who has been sidelined with a strained rotator cuff since May 27, had expected to be activated on Friday. But following a shaky outing on Tuesday at Double-A Akron, the Indians won't rush him back. Manager Terry Francona said Perez's mechanics were off when he allowed five earned runs - three homers - in a one-inning stint against Trenton. In one three-pitch sequence, he gave up a home run, hit a batter and then allowed another homer.

Perez and his wife, Melaine, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Analysis: The two-time All-Star is on the disabled list with tendinitis in his right shoulder. He will begin a minor league rehab assignment Sunday and could rejoin the Indians next week.

Rocky River Police Chief Kelly Stillman said Wednesday afternoon in a brief statement that investigators suspect they found marijuana in a package sent to the Perez home in suburban Cleveland. The chief says it will be up to the state crime lab to determine the shipment's contents.
Analysis: No one has been arrested. Perez hasn't commented and his attorney hasn't responded to a request for comment. Indians general manager Chris Antonetti says in a statement that the team has "talked with Chris" and is "gathering additional information." The Indians often-polarizing closer has six saves this season, but is on the disabled list with an injured right shoulder.

Perez (shoulder tendinitis) will pitch one inning on a minor league assignment for Class A Lake County on Sunday.
Analysis: The Indians said the two-time All-Star has "mild" tendinitis of his rotator cuff. The plan is for Perez not to throw for at least five days and then be re-evaluated. Perez blew a three-run lead in Sunday's game.

He was diagnosed Friday with a strained muscle in his right shoulder, an injury that could sideline him for a month.
Analysis: Perez, who saved 39 games last season, will not throw for the next week to 10 days. Once he resumes his program, the Indians estimate he will be pitching in games in three or four weeks. It is the second straight spring training Perez has been injured. Last year, he was sidelined with a pulled side muscle.
